Nearly every week there are stories of extreme or unusual weather affecting different parts of the world
Nearly every week there are stories of proof that global warming is infact a reality and that it's accelerating.
The BBC did a 3 day special on it's news 24 channel about global warming and it's effects on the earth and what's to come in the next 100 years and
it was scary.
In 100 years, the maldive islands will be under water
In 100 years, the sea level will rise upto 7 meters
In 100 years, oil and gas reserves will be depleted (BBC)
In 2003?, 30k of people in europe died due to a heatwave, the chances of that heatwave happening were 1 in a million (According to the bbc)
Now we're seeing "weird" weather in the form of multiple hurricanes hitting the atlantic coast.
My question is, is it to late to save our planet?
Will global warming destroy it before we can reverse the damage we've done?
At what point will our developed governments sit back and say "....doh!" and actually do something?
I've never really cared about the environement up until this point, at the age of 24 i'm seeing changes in my part of the UK which signify that the
world is changing and not for the better.
Anyone share a similiar fear of the future? or lack of?
